Choosing a new laptop means that you will have to decide between several models.Our analysis was made according to 6 user typologies.So we ran tests on Razer RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 to find out what it was worth.
This article will help you make the right choice according to your needs.
RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 compatible with internet use?
We can consider that for certain uses, such as surfing the web, it is not necessary to buy a high-powered model. This RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. The material used by Razer are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
It’s almost the perfect tool for travelling. A screen 17.3 inches that makes this model transportable anywhere. Even if it is not equipped with a touch screen, this model is still easy to use. A point that could be impeding, for some users,with this RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 if you have to work on the road.
Nevertheless, it remains a quality product with an easy to use trackpad. After all Razer, has accustomed us to design quality products, just like this model, which will serve you for a long time to come.
With a processor Intel core i7 2,90 Ghz, Razer offers an already outdated technology. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 16 Gb of memory. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
Most other competing computers have more storage space. With only 1000 Gb, Razer considers that you won’t need to store too many files locally, and that you’ll rather do it on a public cloud. Not prohibitive in your daily use, but annoying; If you are used to consuming space, think about having a large USB key or external hard drive near you.
Finally, the autonomy of 10 hours is one of the worst on the market. This is lower than what you can find in its competitors for the same price range. A lower autonomy is harmful, because the RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 is easy to access, and you have a lot of fun using it for a long time.
Is RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 okay to watch videos ?
Razer has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the RZ09-01663E53-R3U1; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
As for the screen, it is a model of reduced size, 17.3 inches, with a 3840×2160. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. Continuously over the course of a day’s work or movie viewing, you may feel tired; such a small screen means you have to concentrate more to see better. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 3.54 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
On the sound side, it RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 has good components: board and integrated speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Intel core i7 2,90 Ghz is now outdated. As a result, in the important calculation phase, it may be a little brighter, and will consume more energy. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
You will do what you want for the applications, as it is not Razer installed by default. The operating system and that’s it. This is a Windows that allows you to add the free or paid software you want. Can only be VLC to manage the audio and video part.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, which with 16 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Razer didn’t prioritize connectivity on this laptop. The RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 only 4 ports only provides you with ports. Not enough to connect everything; you’ll have to choose.
In short, for those who wish to replace their TV set with this laptop, it RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 seems inappropriate. Indeed, with 10 hours of autonomy, it is one of the worst specifications. A management of the time available to take into account when you are on the move watching a movie. In other words, do not rely too much on performance and prefer to use this device always connected to electricity.
RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 compatible with on the move use ?
It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 to be easily carried around. This seems to be the issue that the Razer didn’t really take into account in the design of this RZ09-01663E53-R3U1. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It is one of the lightest in this category. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. A 17.3 inches size that can be painful when you have to stay there for more than an hour.

Note that like all manufacturers, Razer is optimistic about the autonomy of this RZ09-01663E53-R3U1. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Razer; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
Unfortunately for the specifications of the batteries will only allow 10 hours of availability, one of the lowest at the moment.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 1000 Gb. This disk technology (solid-state drive), tried and tested for more than 20 years, allows to store data, on the same principle as the usb key. With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Thanks to a reduced space requirement, departures on holiday with all the plane-bus-hotel transfers will be simple. Equipped with a compact 17.3 inches screen, it is one of the smallest models of the moment.
The manufacturer offers only a few connection options, with only 4 connectors. Currently on all available models, it is the laptop that has the poorest equipment.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
Because of all these elements, we do not recommend this RZ09-01663E53-R3U1 for travel use.

As with most laptops, don’t expect incredible battery life (10 hours). It’s not much, and it’s best to let it plugged in while you’re editing audio or video. Maybe the next model will be better off.
On the connection side, the RZ09-01663E53-R3U1i s equipped with USB 3 technology. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives.
